North Korea hasn’t returned to talks as quickly as hoped, Pompeo admits
Secretary of State also urges DPRK to stop missile testing

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday said Pyongyang had not returned to negotiations as quickly as Washington had hoped, though added he expected the road to the DPRK's denuclearization to be a bumpy one.

Pompeo's comments come as Washington's point man on North Korea Stephen Biegeun arrived in South Korea earlier on Tuesday with the hope of restarting talks.
